   Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.   Their vacation agent is ignoring the
Precedence: bulk that correctly puts on each list email.  They're
unnecessarily more irritating than the usual vacation messages.

   Who (if anyone) manages these lists?  Could you post and unsubscribe
the people who autoreply to you?  :)

(for those who aren't posting, everyone who does is getting direct
autoreplies from a few places.  Just imagine if .1% of the LKML had
such autoreplies..)
